Advocate: Advocates ensure that everything within the project is proceeding smoothly and offer objective suggestions to unblock issues without having direct influence over the project. Advocates work alongside Ombuds on individual projects to provide support, advice and clarity where necessary. However they don’t have any say on behalf of SSPEC stakeholders or final solutions; instead advocates serve more as informal advisors due to their expertise of various fields needed for resolving problems arising throughout discussions.
Condition of satisfaction (CoS): What must be met for a Structured Solution to succeed. These visions are presented as collaborative challenges to rigorously problem solve.
Ombud: An ‘ombud’ is a person who negotiates between those engaged in some kind of conflict. In this case the ombuds will mediate Structured Solutions conducted by users across diverse stakeholder backgrounds, which allows for fair decision-making among partners who may not otherwise share common ground with each other.
Stakeholder: Any person or entity who is affected by a solution proposed during a round of discussion—participation in SSPEC does not require voting rights if their only concern with making suggestions for improvements without holding equity stakes.
Stakeholder input: The percentage of stakeholder votes counted towards any proposal or vote on an active proposal grant them membership privileges in voting with weighted criteria contingent upon their total number of shares, restrictions include time frames within purchase range, age limits etc… Historical participation is considered but not afforded top priority given biases implicit therein.
Structured Solution: Successful creative idea generated by SSPEC, which fulfills all CoSs and follows Safety Protocol guidelines.
SSPEC: Stylized abbreviation for Structured Speculation
Structured Speculation (SSPEC): A holistic, consensus-building approach to drive collaborative problem solving. It manages projects, resources, policies and legislation by inferring the necessary conditions for successful completion of a project then prescribing solutions that fulfill those conditions. SSPEC generates outcomes portraying desired goals as realized solutions. Conditions of satisfaction are what must be met in order for Structured Solutions to succeed. These visions are presented collaboratively through challenges with rigorous pragmatic thinking designs the steps needed to take that Condition from present reality into future fulfillment including timeframes for project completion resource allocation and more. Stakeholder input and decision making is managed throughout ranked choice voting ongoingly in an attempt converge final Structured Solution . The purpose of SSPEC is build bridges across diverse perspectives; collecting wisdom and working towards structuring ideas together so knowledge can be made explicit rather than implicit
